The committee wag presided over by General Sir Wm. Nicholson �f th� imperial general's staff and delegates were present from Great Britain, the Dominion of Canada, the Commonwealth of Australia, the Dominion of Naw Zealand and the Union f South Africa, The Canadian deio-gatefl were Sir Frederick Borden, minister of militia and d�f�nce; Major Ueneral 0.

ArrSngemeats required to facilitate the oo-oparatioB of military force of empire fall within the scope of the duties of locitl seditions of iaperlal general ataft, working under orders of their reapective governments and In communication with the central aeotion at the war office at which the dominions wiil 'be represented. The progress of the imperial general Btaft and development of its functions occupy some attention. It Is pointed out that as the imperial general staff has been scarcely two years In existence It could not be reasonahio to look for very great progress. The general staff of the German aimy in ita present form has been In existence for over bait a century before its value proved to the world in I86ii aud 1870. The general staff of the Japanese army was over twenty-five years before the campaign in .Manchuria began. As soon as the formation of the Imperial general staff was seriously talcen in band it was found that more definite agreement of various points Was rc(iuired and accordingly a paper on detailed arrangomenis of loans, at-tucbments and interclianges of and between officers of regular army and otticers of overseas dominions was drawn up under orders of chief of tlio imperial general ataff In 1910 and VBB forwarded through colonial offlcH for consideration of various goveru-mcnts concerned. The proposals contained In that paper have been accepted In prlnciplp by Cnnada and New Zealand. Australia has not yet replied and the government of the Union of South Africa hove stated they are not In a position to enter Into any aRroenicnt at present.
